Compact Summer Blooming Miss Manners Obedient Plant

  • Non-Suckering Physostegia
  • Creamy White Blooms
  • Waxy, Green, Toothed Foliage
  • Full Sun Tolerant
  • Incredible in Mass Planting with Darker Colors

The Miss Manners Obedient Plant (Physostegia virginiana 'Miss Manners') or False Dragonhead, has bright white spiked flowers.

'Miss Manners' blooms from June to September and the waxy, dark green foliage make this plant a little different from other white blooming perennials. So out with the old and in with the new!

It is a noteworthy perennial that is respectful of space in the small garden because of its compact, non-suckering habit. 'Miss Manners' is well mannered and is not as aggressive as most other Physostegia!

For the best growth possible of 18 inches tall and wide, this plant needs a full sun area but will tolerate some afternoon shade, in well-drained soil.

Use 'Miss Manners' in borders, mixed plantings, massed plantings (especially to separate other colors), in large containers or as cut flowers.

Try planting it with darker colors such as Hemerocallis 'Little Business', Platycodon 'Balloon Flower' or Veronica 'Royal Candles'. These darker colors will make 'Miss Manners' pop intensely.

You will find 'Miss Manners' a delight in the garden as it provides a summer-long display of pure white tubular flowers and clean, deep-green, narrow foliage!

Miss Manners Obedient Plant is one of a kind and nearly impossible to resist! Order your very own today at Nature Hills Nursery and make your landscaping come to life!
